    Broadway to Dim Its Lights
    Oct. 3 in Honor of Late
    Paul Newman

    Paul Newman
    The marquees of the Broadway theatres will be dimmed Oct. 3 at 8 PM for one minute to pay tribute to the late Paul Newman, who died Sept. 26 at the age of 83 after battling cancer.

    In a statement Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said, "For over half a century Paul Newman has graced our stages and inspired our souls with his brilliant talent. He received a Tony nomination for his inventive role as the Stage Manager in Our Town. After beginning his illustrious career on stage, his love for theatre continued throughout his life as demonstrated by the Newman family's support of the renowned Westport Country Playhouse. Off-stage, his tireless devotion to philanthropic work has enhanced many lives and worthwhile causes. His presence everywhere will be missed."

    Newman was a universally admired stage and screen actor, director and philanthropist.

    TCM Remembers Paul Newman (1925-2008)
    Paul Newman, with his electric blue eyes and gutsy willingness to play anti-heroes, established himself as one of the movies' great leading men before settling into his latter-day career of flinty character acting. Born in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in 1925, Newman studied at the Yale Drama School and New York's Actors Studio before making his Broadway debut in Picnic.

    Re: 'Cars 2' and the loss of Paul Newman

    I think they should approach Robert Redford to voice the role in tribute to his great friend, or create a new one to the same purpose. Seeing them together on the Sundance Channel's Iconoclasts series was such a kick, the genuine warmth and affection that they had for each other was wonderful.

    Will Paul Newman's Character Return For 'Cars 2'?

    Pixar chief says they may recast role like they did with Jim Varney in 'Toy Story 3.'

    By Shawn Adler
    MTV
    Three years out from taking the checkered flag as Pixar's big summer tent pole of 2011, the highly anticipated sequel "Cars 2" is entering the starting gate without one of the most iconic voices behind the original. Über-producer and Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney Animation John Lasseter revealed exclusively to MTV News that Paul Newman was unable to record any dialogue for the film before dying from cancer at his home in September.

    "No," Lasseter said when asked if Newman was able to schedule a return as Doc Hudson, the former champion racecar turned small-town burgomaster, before his death. "It's been really sad because I had a great friendship with Paul, and he was so impressive to work with in 'Cars' - [he] really made that character. So I have fond, fond memories of him. Not only did he make a great character, but he became a great friend of mine too, so I'm gonna really miss him."

    Speaking with MTV News from the "WALL-E" red carpet this past June, Lasseter said that the character of Doc Hudson was very much in the mix for the sequel, insisting, without a doubt, that the "character is coming back."

    Given his earlier statement and the fact that "Cars 2" recently shifted its release from 2012 to summer 2011, it's somewhat odd, perhaps, that Lasseter now says it's "unclear" whether the character will be seen (or heard), confessing that they'll have to "see how the story goes with Doc Hudson."

    Lasseter is adamant, however, that the decision will ultimately be beholden to story, and not tradition, confessing he's not averse to recasting the role with a sound-alike actor, similar to what the company decided to do with Slinky Dog, a character voiced by Jim Varney in "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2" before the actor's death in 2000.

    "In 'Toy Story 3,' for instance ... we found actually an old friend of [Varney's] who sounds an awful lot like him - another actor that's going to be doing that voice," Lasseter said of the character's return. "It'll be hard to replace Paul Newman, but we don't know yet."

    "Cars" voice star George Carlin also died this year, in June. His character, Fillmore, was a much smaller role than Newman's. It is unclear if he will be replaced as well, or if Fillmore will simply be written out of the sequel.
